I don't know if the OP is still around but this is the most relevant post amongst the Redex/snake oil love in. Get a second opinion, and be prepared to stump up. A couple of hours sounds about right, the SV isn't the quickest of bikes to work on. Don't get suckered into expensive ultrasonic cleaning, unless you have literally dug your bike up from out of the ground and pulled worms from the various orifices.
